Pumpkin spice also commonly known as pumpkin pie spice is an aromatic spice mix that is commonly used in making a number of pumpkin recipes. Not only that I enjoy putting it on top of my cereal, cookies or bread. It has such warm notes and a very comforting feel to it. It is an easy blend of fall or winter spices. I find it handy to have pumpkin spice blend at home so that I can use regularly in my recipes.
Here are the pumpkin pancakes that I regularly make. And then there is this crowd favourite pumpkin spice latte that is superbly delicious. Of course, I make a healthier version of it, and it is a hit with everyone at home. So easy to make too.
What is pumpkin pie spice made of?
It is made of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ground ginger and allspice (optional). Check the recipe for the exact proportion.
Here is the simple pumpkin spice mix recipe:

Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend
- 4 tsp. cinnamon powder
- 2 tsp. ground ginger
- 1 tsp. clove powder
- ½ tsp. nutmeg powder
- 1 tsp. allspice optional
- Mix all the powders together and store in an airtight jar.
- Your pumpkin pie spice is ready to use.
2. I don’t add allspice but some people swear by it so go with your palate.
3. The spice mix stays fresh for a few weeks when stored in an airtight container.
This is such an easy recipe. You can get the individual spice powders and then mix them in the given proportion to make your own spice blend to use. Do try.

So this is what they use in lattes. Interesting. Since this seems to be the year of trying things, I might just make this. Thanks, Rachna.
Yes this is. I have been using it a lot in many recipes including pumpkin spice latte whose recipe I shared today. Do try. You will enjoy it.
Thanks so much for posting it- I had loved your pumpkin pancakes recipe and wanted to know how to make this. 🙂
You are most welcome. 🙂
Oh I needed this! Thank you so much 🙂
Happy to help!
I was so naive, I thought there would be some pumpkin in it 😀 I might have accidentally made this latte (except for nutmeg) without knowing its fancy name.
hehe Yes it is a commonly used spice mix in autumn and winter recipes especially in baking. The latte recipe is shared separately. 🙂
I love the sound of your pumpkin pie spice as well as how easy it is!! The pumpkin pancakes sound to die for and I can't wait to try them. Nothing but the good stuff here!
Everything homemade is better, and this pumpkin spice is not an exception. I made it today and am ready for my next baking project.
We always make our own. Perfect for putting in porridge.
I always buy pre-made pumpkin pie spice because I had no idea it was so easy to make from scratch at home! This recipe was great - I'll never need to buy pumpkin pie spice at the store again!
